Chronicles Radio Presents:
With Marty Janowitz
Conversation with Dr. Laurie Mallery
Welcome to Cooking Rice, conversations with people whose work in the world is grounded in contemplative practice.
In this episode, Marty talks with Dr. Laurie Mallery, head of the Division of Geriatric Medicine at Dalhousie University and Director of the Centre for Health Care of the Elderly at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Dr. Mallery is the author of The Salami Salesman and his Daughter Falafel: What an Older Man's Death Can Teach Us about How and How Not to Care for the Frail and Dying, which chronicles the challenges families can face when navigating the healthcare system on behalf of a frail older adult.
Dr. Mallery is the cofounder of the PATH (Palliative and Therapeutic Harmonization) consortium and training program. PATH is for frail older adults with advanced medical conditions, where the impact of interventional procedures on quality of life may be questioned. She has also codeveloped the Renewal Method exercise program for older adults, based on principles of high intensity resistance training and Pilates exercise.
Next week on Cooking Rice: Tune in on Wednesday, June 6 for part one of Marty's conversation with Chuck Lief.
Theme music for Cooking Rice is from Jeff Torbert's CD: This Weather Honest
